Description Attractions

       One of the few monsteries in Tibet that weathered the stormy seas of the Cultural Revolution,Tashilhunpo Monstery  remains relatively unscathed.It is a real pleasure to expllore the busy cobbled lanes twisting around the aged buildings.Covering 70,000 sq meters, the monstery is essentially a walled twon in its own right.

       From the entrance to the monastery, visitors get a grand view.Above the white monastic quarters is a crowd of ochre building topped with gold - the tombs of the past Panchen Lamas.To the right,and higher still,is the Festival Thangka Wall that is hung with massive,colourful thangkas during festivals.Circumnavigating the compound is a one-hour kara that takes you into the hills behind the monstery.

      As you start to explore the various building, you will see a lot of photos of the ninth,10th and 11th Panchen Lamas.The ninth Panchen Lama is recognisable by his little moustache.The 11th Panchen Lama is the disputed Chinese-sponsored lama,now in his early 20s.
